Welcome Here

Welcome to South Side Baptist Church.

South Side is a family of believers in Jesus Christ that seeks to glorify God by making disciples in Abilene and the world as we live out the love of Jesus in a community of faith. We are led by a plurality of spiritually qualified elders, preach verse by verse through Scripture, sing Gospel-centered songs, and are serious about the Great Commission. We hope you'll visit!

What to Expect

Meet Our Leadership


We believe that each member of God’s family has a unique and God-given role to fulfill in glorifying God. Our Children’s Ministry strives to assist parents in teaching their children about their special place in God’s family by teaching basic biblical principles to exemplify God’s Word. In this respect, each volunteer, staff member and teacher is to be a living testimony that God has graced His children with the ability to learn about His creation and His goodness.

The goal of the student ministry of South Side Baptist church is to glorify Jesus Christ specifically through 6th-12th grade students and their families. We will seek to accomplish this by equipping parents to disciple their students and engaging students with the Word of God each week. We long to see students and their families trust Jesus and follow after him in lifelong obedience to his commands. Below are the typical events that take place within the life of our church that are specifically intended to accomplish these goals.
